A Gentle Lady
Christopher Columbus could discover a new world simply by strolling through the city streets with a turtle on a leash. Instead of the turtle I started bringing a camera. So the space around me suddenly doubled (the time, however, unfortunately has halved). By day I catch the light, at night I bring with me a small stockpile of it in the form of pictures. In the silence and darkness, shapes emerge from the light, and finally take the shape of photography. Since I began to photograph, the instant has become my prey. Photography is a fierce celebration of life. The camera is a gentle lady who claims to be loved because she can give birth to another life. At the same time it takes and gives. Ever since I started looking at the world with her eyes, a little miracle happens every day under my eyes.
